Why See Pinter at the Pinter - Moonlight/Night School?
Lyndsey Turner and Ed Stambollouian direct
Jamie Lloyd and co have cooked up a unique new event paying tribute to theatrical iconoclast Harold Pinter for the tenth anniversary of his death - a whole season at his namesake theatre, dedicated to his one-act plays. Olivier Award winner Lyndsey Turner will direct Moonlight with Ed Stambollouian directing Night School.
Over a five decade career, Harold Pinter rose to become one of our most influential playwrights with his biting wit and simmering menace contributing to 29 full length plays and 25 theatrical sketches. The Pinter at the Pinter season will delve into his shorter works, that despite their length, pack no less of that characteristic punch.
s a father lies dying, the past returns to haunt the family who he leaves behind. Exploring the brutality of family life and the painful swell of long ago memories Pinter creates an emotionally raw, yet unexpectedly funny one act masterpiece.
Returning home from prison, this East End criminal finds a strange woman occupying his abode. Set in the claustrophobic homes of 1960s London, this law-breaker must discover what this woman is hiding. This is a rare opportunity to see Pinter's witty play, with innovative director Ed Stambollouian at the helm it is certainly not one to be missed.
Opening night: 1 November 2018
